According to the GoFundMe page, Espinoza is a single mother of two little girls.
The account was created by Espinoza’s niece Jeniffer Mendez.
"She was so empowering, she was very strong and honest...my aunt is a once in a lifetime type of woman. She protected her family with all her might and was willing to give her life for the sake of her two daughters," said Mendez.
I never thought I would make one of these go fund me things. Sadly, it has come to it. Single Mother of 2, daughter, youngest sister of 6, and an amazing aunt, Yesenia Espinoza was tragically taken away from us due to an accident at work. She only worked at that place to give her daughters everything she could. It was not her time to go. Her baby Michelle is turning 1 year old in 10 days from today... and Angelina is only 6 years old. We need as much help as possible to pay for the expenses of the funeral. I don’t know much about them, but if it’s less than $10,000, the rest of the money will be used for Angelina Marie and Michelle Ann Leatherwood. We all appreciate everyone’s help, anything will help us during our time of need. From all of us, we wish everyone happy holidays, and to be safe. Thank you.
